In addition, try looking around for information from other writers who have

It's too soon to start looking for another job. You know the product and
the company, and you've got a chance to take an entirely new approach to
your documentation. I've worked with Agile/Scrum teams that were run well
and loved it. Give the process a chance. Of course Agile/Scrum can be
poorly managed and you might eventually need to move on, but experience
with Agile/Scrum will look good on your resume.
